Mainly the characters in The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros are static except for the main character Esperanza Nenny Lucy and Rachel are characters considered static because they dont change throughout the novel They pretty much remain the same from beginning to end At the beginning of the novel Esperanza is a girl with a low self-esteem and then she changes as the novel go on First at the start of the novel Esperanza was very naive Like when Louies cousin drove up in the new car she never suspected anything was wrong Later when the cops came and arrested Louies cousin Esperanza didnt understand what was going on and started waving as they drove away Second a man asked Esperanza to kiss him at her first job and she agreed He kissed her hard on the mouth and wouldnt let go Esperanza didnt realize what was going on until it was too late Even after this incident was over she was not mature enough to talk to somebody about it and never mentioned it again Finally as you get closer to the end of the novel you start to see a changed in Esperanzas character Toward later part of the story she gains understanding and become clear about her personality She shows that when she knows that she was wrong for mimicking her sick aunt The incident also illustrated that she understands the concept of heaven and hell This is a big development from the way she acted earlier in the novel So in conclusion we can see how Esperanza changes as the novel progresses She went from being shy girl with a low confidence to a mature girl It took her a while to realize what she was doing before she begins to change
